As we approach the two-week winter break, let us celebrate the wonderful growth which has occurred across our three schools. Our halls are filled with examples of the learning and effort which our students put forth each day; our staff members dedicate endless hours to ensure all materials are ready for the learning process. We are grateful for the partnership between home and school in support of our students.
As a school community, we have decided that winter break will be a time to recharge, refresh, and enjoy time with those who bring us joy. As a result, no homework will be assigned to be completed during the winter break. We recommend picking up a good book to enjoy reading for pleasure.
We wish you a refreshing break and time to reconnect as a family. We look forward to seeing our halls filled again on January 8, 2018.

District 35 has launched the One Book, One District initiative and selected one book to be the annual focus of our professional learning for staff and parents. Our opening selection is Mindset, by Dr. Carol Dweck.

Please join us for our second Conversation & Coffee facilitated by Al Ross, Amy Holaday, and Catherine Wang. RSVP by January 16th to attend this session. We welcome all to attend (whether you have read the book or not)!
